Village Players of Fort Thomas will host one-man wonder Tim Mooney for a special Patron Appreciation Night performance Thursday, May 30th at 8:00 p.m. in their intimate theatre at 8 N. Fort Thomas Ave. With the recent acquisition of the building that previously belonged to Fort Thomas Women’s Club, Village Players would like to use this opportunity to thank subscribers, donors, and the community for their ongoing support with a FREE one-night-only performance of Mooney’s critically acclaimed “Lot o’ Shakespeare”!
Mooney has memorized one monologue from every Shakespeare play, capturing the most stirring speeches, wicked double-entendres, and delicious sonorous soliloquies ever to emerge from Shakespeare’s pen! Following rave reviews at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and around the United States, Lot o’ Shakespeare is a dynamic tour de force of vocal and physical pyrotechnics featuring 38 monologues chosen entirely at random by the spinning of a Bingo cage! The audience plays along on their individual “IAGO” cards, and the first to match four plays in a row wins a t-shirt! And while the game turns it all into fun, in the process the audience discovers the breadth, the excitement and genius of Shakespeare in passionate scenes of action, character and power!
This is a free, one night only event and seating is limited to 102. Reservations are strongly suggested and may be made by calling 859.781.3583.
